What Bert Has To Say About Cumberland Metro Area

Cumberland has a history as a transportation center and gateway to the west. Originally, the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal met toll roads to the west there. Later came the railroads and the historic National Road—now U.S. 40. Cumberland is still a railroad town, with almost 1000 employed by CSX, but that figure has declined significantly over the decades.
